Ocampos leaves with Messi another proof of his intense character

The Sevilla winger, who is having a grayer start to the campaign, was decisive against Ecuador and asked Barça about the penalty shot.

This start to the season is not being the best for Lucas Ocampos, who suffered an injury in the final part of the Europa League that Sevilla won in Cologne. Turned on against Bayern Munich in the Super Cup a few weeks ago, when he scored a penalty for what has been his only goal this season so far, the Argentine attacker is costing him more in LaLiga, still unprecedented in goals and assists after his fantastic debut campaign in Nervión.

But with Argentina he was once again decisive by provoking the penalty that gave the albiceleste victory against Ecuador. It was in that set, just before the maximum penalty was launched, when Ocampos left another great test of his confidence and character that caught television: "Lio, are you going?" He asked Messi with the interest of approaching the 11 meters if the 10 of Barcelona preferred not to. "Yes, yes", answered the azulgrana.

Few would even dare to ask Messi to take a penalty, although it is true that the six-time Ballon d'Or does not have the best of his virtues. This is not the case, in fact, with Lucas Ocampos himself, who has scored the six he tried with Sevilla: five in LaLiga last season and the one already reviewed against Bayern. Professionally, in Europe, he had only shot one more, with Italian Genoa in 2016-17. And he also managed to transform it.
